Judicial Hypocrisy – Democrat Double Standard On Gay Marriage

8 September 2015 AD/24 Elul 5775

Back in 2012, U.S. District Judge David Bunning declared her refusal to perform marriage ceremonies, but no federal judge came after her.

In 2015, merely 3 years later on, County Clerk Kim Davis refused to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals, a federal judge ordered her locked away to prevent “a ripple effect” of opposition across the country.

Fact: the federal courts have absolutely no constitutional authority to make law.

leg•is•late /ˈlɛdʒɪsˌleɪt/ , intransitive verb meaning “to exercise the function of legislation;
make or enact laws“, “to create, provide, or control by legislation” [WordReference.com]

Quoting Chief Justice John Roberts, his dissent against the majority “gay marriage” opinion:

“[T]his court is not a legislature. Whether same-sex marriage is a good idea should be of no concern to us. Under the Constitution, judges have power to say what the law is, not what it should be.”

Article I, Section 1: Legislative Authority of Congress

All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

judg•ment  ( jujmənt), noun meaning “the ability to judge, make a decision, or form an opinion objectively, authoritatively, and wisely, esp. in matters affecting action

Article III, Section 2: Judicial Authority of Federal Courts

The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority;—to all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls;—to all Cases of admiralty and maritime Jurisdiction;—to Controversies to which the United States shall be a Party;—to Controversies between two or more States;— between a State and Citizens of another State,—between Citizens of different States,—between Citizens of the same State claiming Lands under Grants of different States, and between a State, or the Citizens thereof, and foreign States, Citizens or Subjects.

Only the legislative branch (Congress) has constitutional authority to make laws. The judicial branch has authority to resolve disputes over laws made by Congress.

Two Vitally Important Points

Number One – of the thirty enumerated powers granted federal government by the states, defining marriage is not among them. In fact, among those enumerated (limited) powers are none that govern or define the legitimate family. Remember that it was a congress of the States that created federal government.

Number Two – I refer you to the Ninth and Tenth Amendments. At no time in history have the States given authority to federal government to define marriage or the family. Therefore, such definitions are left to the individual states.

Seeking Order

U.S. District Judge David Bunning is under the judicial branch. The U.S. Marshall he ordered to jail Kim Davis operates under the executive branch.

Judge David Bunning fears a “ripple effect” (his words) and I believe his fear well founded. We must add to the ripple effect and amplify it to the press, to our congressional delegates and to our state government.

In the case of Kim Davis, it was the State of Kentucky that failed its duty to protect her.

This onerous, unconstitutional opinion of the Supreme Court overstepped separation of powers granted federal government under the Constitution by creating a new law, a role reserved to the Legislative Branch.

Christians are under attack in the Middle East and we are under attack right here in America. The word for this attack is “persecution”. Jesus warned us. It began 2,000 years ago and now it’s dramatically increasing.

Scripture promises, God promises, “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.”

Action

  1. Pray for Kim Davis
  2. Pray for wisdom and grace
  3. Contact your Congressional delegation to demand an accounting by this Supreme Court where five justices are exhibiting bad behaviour worthy of impeachment.
